Racism on YouTube

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Racism on YouTube panel will take a hard look at the various struggles that black members of the YouTube community face each day. YouTube is an expansive, diverse community, but its foremost personalities largely fall under the white and Asian racial umbrellas. Only two of the site’s top 100 personalities are black (DeStorm, Kingsley), and there’s a significant drop-off after that. This panel will examine why it is that blacks struggle to contend with other races on the platform and also explore various issues that arise with racist commenters and detractors.
